School Master’s Desk with cane and hand bell
Victorian onwards. The teacher’s desk was high so the teacher could see all his pupils without having to stand. It also elevated his position in the eyes of the children. There were two inkwells, one red and one blue, in the top of the desk as well as two lift-up shelves to extend the desk top. The base of the desk was a cupboard where books could be stored. The hand bell was kept on top of the desk and the cane was always on show on a hook at the side of the desk.
